This past week was quite hectic: after failing to recover my RAID 0 array, I decided to swap RAID controllers but that didn’t end up working due to incompatibility issues that is too long to explain. Summary: the Asus P4C800-E Deluxe motherboard with the Adaptec 1420SA RAID controller card do not like to work together. Inserting the 1420SA card caused my Intel RAID controller to not work (didn’t boot up my existing setup). I am pretty fed up of this whole matter (which has been going on for the past 3 weeks) that I have decided to buy a second computer to act as a permanent file server. I just need a proper 64-bit PCI-X slot to house the 1420SA card with 6-8 hard drive bays.
I have been taking a week off from training due to some slight pain in my right thigh. It seems to be healed now, so I will most likely go back to the gym either tonight or tomorrow night. I can’t wait! My stats so far are as follows; Squat: 240 lbs, Bench: 185 lbs, Press: 100 lbs, Clean: 131 lbs and Dips: 25 lbs. Now, I need to implement more cardiovascular exercises into my program to get rid of the excess fat and improve my circulatory system.
